Panorama - BP - In Deep Water
Mon 21 Jun 2010 20:30
Two months after an explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of
Mexico killed 11 people, Panorama's Hilary Andersson tells the story of
America's 'greatest environmental disaster.'
Dubbed an environmental '9/11' by President Obama, the leak caused by the
explosion is still releasing thousands of barrels of crude oil a day into the
waters of the Gulf - livelihoods and ecosystems are threatened, fishermen are
unable to work and billions have been wiped off the value of BP shares.
Panorama examines the full consequences of the disaster amid a mounting war of
words between the Obama adminstration and an embattled BP, asking what went
wrong and who is really to blame.
